Description

Normal human microbiota has been shown to prevent bacterial diseases such as those caused by Streptococcus pyogenes. Consequently, susceptibility to other diseases may also be linked to the human microbiome. In order to test this, oral microbiota, such as Streptococcus and Lactobacillus, were tested in a biofilm setting with bacteria from the Bordetella genus to determine if certain oral microbiota have the potential to inhibit Bordetella growth and biofilm formation. Understanding the interaction between pathogen and microbiota may lead to new mechanisms of disease prevention.
